Federal Government plans central database for graduate pharmacists.

Federal Government has expressed concerns over continuous brain-drain in the country particularly in the health sector.

The government said it had concluded arrangements on its new initiative to ensure all graduate pharmacists are on a central database.

According to the federal government, this would minimize the issue of non-vacancy for internship placement for fresh graduate pharmacists, unemployment and brain-drain which has become the order of the day in the country.
